Life at Texas A&M will be different in the post Johnny Manziel era.
Johnny Football won’t be around to take all the attention off of everyone else. According to Steve Fullhart of KBTX, Texas A&M wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct overnight.

According to reports, a trashed Seals-Jones had to be carried out of a local bar around closing time. Seals-Jones wasn’t totally out it, and had enough sense to get into an argument with a passerby.
At that point officers on the scene moved in to see what was going on, but it was already to late. A drunk Seals-Jones was already cursing and trying to fight anyone around.
As the officer moved towards the scene to see and hear what was going on, he says Seals-Jones broke away from his friends and yelled “F*** you! You want some?” The officer also says Seals-Jones motioned to the other person like he wanted to fight. The player was taken into custody on the misdemeanor charge.
Seals-Jones was injured in the 2013 season opener against Rice while scoring a touchdown. He sat out the next game against Sam Houston State, had limited playing time in the Alabama game, and was given a medical redshirt to maintain his year of eligibility. He was among the most highly-touted wide receivers in the nation out of high school.
Aggie Athletics spokesperson Alan Cannon tells News 3, as per department policy, Seals-Jones will have an indefinite suspension placed on him. Since spring has passed, Cannon says that suspension would include team lifting and running for the time being.
